The Rural Digitalisation Forum (RDF) is a platform, set-up within the DESIRA project, bringing together a wide range of stakeholders working on digitalisation of rural areas. The RDF aims to be a space for sharing experiences, ideas and recommendations, and communicating them across Europe.
In this first RDF meeting, participants will:
- exchange about the results of the Pan-European assessment on digitalisation of rural areas carried out by DESIRA;
- get a common understanding of the key conceptual foundations of the project, namely digital transformation, digital game changers and socio-cyber-physical systems;
- discuss the practical implications of the mapping and taxonomy of digital technologies based on the analysis of about 600 digital tools and applications from across the EU;
- learn about the draft set of socio-economic and sustainability indicators for measuring the impacts of digitalisation in agriculture, forestry and rural areas.
